  • In a tastefully appointed room, three ladies and three gentlemen are engaged in a round of quadrille, a card game developed at the French court in the early eighteenth century. At right, a maid and an enslaved servant are about to serve tea (the latter carries a kettle, as does the page in Hogarth’s "A Harlot's Progress", displayed nearby). Gravelot, who was born and trained in France, came to London in 1733 to pursue a career as a painter and book illustrator. Gravelot’s "A Game of Quadrille" became well known through a large copy displayed at Vauxhall Gardens, London’s premier pleasure ground at the time. This large version was one of approximately fifty pictures made to decorate the Gardens’ “supper-boxes,” where visitors dined.
